This activity demonstrates the preparation and properties of ammonia and highlights its use in making ammonium nitrate, an important fertiliser. Ammonia is made by combining calcium oxide and ammonium chloride in a heat simulation and students then find out how much ammonia is made through word and chemical formula equations.
